Cinnamon Apple Biscuit Cups

I had an extra pouch of cinnamon roll icing sitting in my fridge that I didn’t know what to do about.

It was leftover from when I made the cinnamon roll cheesecake. I had the good sense to hold on to it, because 1. who in their right minds would throw out a perfectly good pouch of icing, and 2. I just knew that there’s gotta be another recipe that could use that extra yumminess.

Ah yes I know, it’s tough living, having to wrack my brains to come up with a recipe that would need some extra icing, but after much pondering and snacking and Pinterest-shopping, at last, I’ve found a winner: Cinnamon Apple Biscuit Cups!

I know what you’re thinking: Not everyone has extra cinnamon roll icing pouches lying around in their fridge that they’re trying to get rid of, so I have included a make-your-own-icing-from-scratch recipe below.

Cinnamon and apples is probably the quintessential Fall combination. But honestly, I could have cinnamon apple anything anytime of the year. To me, it’s the perfect yummylicious flavor duo that makes me think sweet, warm, delicious gooeyness. Which is something we all could probably use extra dosages of just to help us survive this never-ending winter…
